Hi everyone I'm new to this. I've been suffering with constant nausea for the last 3 weeks. Been to the doctors had blood tests and everything come back normal. I'm also struggling to get out off bed I feel that I'll in the morning. It's really getting me down keep crying because I don't know what's wrong. Got no energy what so ever. Need help. The doctors seem to think it's anxiety but I'm not convinced

That's good nothing came up in blood tests. I get like that sometimes. Perhaps us anxious types are prone to it?!

I feel like there's something wrong. I'm normally very active but I can't seem to do anything

Are you under stress? From my experience that can bring it on.

I don't feel like I am under stress but I feel that I'm worrying way to much about feeling like this. I feel very shakey and nervous.

Welcome to the club Mel! I have been feeling nauseous for almost 2 years now, some days it's better than others but I feel it's always there. I've had blood tests and endoscopy but all came back on so now my Dr thinks it's from anxiety. I sometimes find eating very plain foods help but it is rather boring :/ good luck

I've been feeling nauseous all day, every day, for 3 months. Doctors said there was nothing wrong. I had anxiety as a kid and teen. I took meds in high school to control it, but it made me gain weight so I took myself off of it. However, back then, my anxiety came through trouble breathing and shortness of breath. So the constant nausea was new for me. I see a therapist and try to meditate but that only helps in the moment. I'm scheduled to see a psychiatrist but am nervous to take meds again. On the other hand, I can't wait to feel like myself again. Good luck

Hi Kaitlin16 ....same for me - 5 straight weeks of queasiness and nausea - generally worse at night. I'm also on the verge of seeing a psychiatrist. I may try Lexapro which helped me with sleep issues in the past. Maybe it will help with this.

I also have a hard time falling and staying asleep. But the nausea is the most grueling symptom that I can't ignore. I hope meds help BOTH of us!

Fellow sufferer here! It's been months. I've had blood tests, and ultrasound and an endoscopy. All came back clear of any issues [of course]. I absolutely think anxiety plays a role [I am emetophobic] but I'm not convinced it's the only culprit. I went to a follow up the other day at the GI and she thinks I could be dealing with IBS. She wants to try a few things before I run and do a colonoscopy but I'm so miserable I don't know if I can wait. I'm pretty much housebound and it's ruining my life. Especially having a 17 month old who needs to go out and socialize.

About 2 weeks ago I started mirtazapine for anxiety and supposedly it helps with nausea. I've seen a little improvement but then back to square one on Sunday, so who knows. It's hard to stay positive when nobody has any answers. I have to rely on memories and sort of put myself in them to remember/feel normal. If that makes sense? Just know you're not alone. Maybe talk to your doc about mirtazapine?
